Yeah, because beating him for doing this is really going to make him come home more often........ :\

DON'T BEAT YOUR CHILD. EVER.

It is not okay to hit an adult, so it's not okay to hit a kid.

What consequences HAVE you tried?

Dont EVER beat your child! I guess you were also beaten when you were a child,there are other ways to handle your child,but not with beating.

Can you find an after school drop-in or teen program that he can go to? Do you live near a YMCA or a boys & girls club. The ideal would be to find somewhere safe that he wants to go.

No! You don't hit a child. Ever. If you don't want him playing after school hire someone to watch him, put him in an after school program or sport, or go watch over him yourself.
